You can’t make this stage in Super Mario Maker.
In honor of this week’s release of Nintendo Wii U Mario creation tool, last week I tasked our image-manipulation experts to demonstrate what sort of Mario we could make without a $60 game. They certainly rose to the occasion.
And while the brave and valorous Hundredgunner takes home top honors this week with his nostalgia-inducing visit to the old Pipes screensaver, those recieving slightly lesser honors are sights to see as well.
sillstaw — for the hauntingly named “Mario is Missing.”
SenpaiSoren — for TerrArio.
Tommaton — because no one can resist Super Marius.
cecil_banon — mainly because I like the name Cecil.
LegendarioDrak — because I would have bought it.
Vulcan Assassin — for trying.
DistractedObserver — because I said so.
Mrichston — for this shining example.
Ozimov — for terrible reality.
99Typhoons — for confusing me.
Toolsoldier — for making me wonder why the bit under her butt is dirty.
uscg_pa — because it beats dysentery.
Bloodsense — because this is pretty much Super Mario Bros. 3.
eagle29 — for good old Jumpman.
Greg the Mad — because LEGO.
CityShrimp — because it’s just not fair.
Cartoonivore — because yes, he is a stinker.
codexcdm — oh god, make it stop.
sciteach — because of course.
Taurenrider — at least until dawn.
And of course...
Hundredgunner for the win!
Tune in later today, when I figure out some other sort of Photoshop torture to inflict.
